By today's trash media standards, this films flops. For it's time it was A+ in the glitzy make-believe department. If it was in color, everything would be pink and turquoise. No sex, dope, or murder. Just a cute little dress-up with Martha Hyer in a fab Italian cut hair-do, Forrest Tucker as a not too believable romantic lead, and Margaret Whiting, stylish and typically 1950's songstress. In addition, It has great dance numbers. Don't quite get the circus act. I liked it. I'll watch it again.

possibly corrupted file
After downloading it I was able to view 15 minutes into the film before the image went wobbly followed by lost of sound and my QuickTime viewer stalled/ froze.
Hopefully this is only my experience. I attempted to re download thinking maybe its just the copy I have but re-downloading took more than a day and download still didn't complete.

Where's the color?
This was originally a color movie, but this version is in B&W. A big dissapointment

Live! From the Moulin Rouge! (restaurant)
This is a bit of a hard musical film to like. Essentially it follows the opening night of a musical spectacular in a (actual) restaurant called the Moulin Rouge. The lead actress is essentially there because sheÂs in love with the director, but heÂs off seeing the art director on the side. Meanwhile, the lead actressÂs kid sister is looking for her big break too. When the lead actress finds out about her philandering boyfriend, will this be her chance?
Filled with a Âwho cares?Â story and somewhat boring production values, (although the ÂcircusÂ ending was a bit inspired.. End the show with Circus elephants!) and interestingly tired dance numbers, this whole thing gets boring quick, especially when they stall the story for fifteen minutes to go through 5 or 6 songs. YAWN! The acting here is ok, Forrest Tucker seems to canÂt wait for this thing to end, Margaret Whiting is a passable singer at best, and sheÂs got WAY too much lipstick on, and I LOVE Dick Wesson as the obligatory gay stage manager. Is there any other kind?

this film needs Color Nostagia often disappoints.
It is pleasant light entertainment. It presents nearly all of a musical show at an expensive night club restuarant in hollywood in 1955.This film proves that nostalgia is often disappointing.

Wall to wall music almost
and very few memorable tunes. Some funny bits, and the opening choreography is outstanding, but mostly a yawner of a musical.
Some good bits, epecially with shor composition, but not many.
